“Art heals and reveals, things about our selves, our society and our history. My work tries to bridge these concepts and inspire people to ask themselves questions about the human experience and assumptions we make. My fascination with how people see the world is both literal and metaphoric. If one person ever walks away form my work and is inspired to see themselves, others differently, then I have succeeded as an artist.” — Jeni Wheeler

Jeni Wheeler. Detroit Queen of Blues, 2019. 24″ x 36″ Mixed media: Acrylic, watercolor, ink on paper, framed. $300
“This piece is a portrait of Detroit’s own, Thornetta Davis – the multi-talented Blues songstress who has graced and dominated stages throughout Michigan for more than fifteen years. Originally created for a show celebrating blues music, the reference photo was taken by photographer Jim Aho. Thornetta’s sultry voice and kinetic energy really helped to inform this piece while I was creating it.”

SOLD!!! —Jeni Wheeler. Saylem in Pastel, 2019. 16″ x 20″ Oil pastel on paper. $350

“Saylem in Pastel is a pastel portrait of my Art Daughter, Saylem — An amazing soul whom I met at Wayne State University and a familyship was truly born. Saylem, whose knowledge and passion for Detroit is truly inspiring, appears as part of my Everyday Goddess series. This goal of the series is to inspire people to see the divinity and value in each other, especially as we work toward building a world free of prejudice.”
